If you think the Kingdom of God is above you,

then birds will find it first.


If you think it is in the ocean,

then fish will discover it before you do.


Look…. the Kingdom of God

is within you and all around you.


The Gospel of Thomas


Seeking within, you will find stillness.

Here there is no more fear or attachment-

only joy.
